About this funder:




The mission of the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation is to advance society through the performing arts, conservation of the world’s oceans, and alleviation of poverty. The foundation was created in 2011 to honor Paul M. Angell, and strives to embody the legacy of his compassion, ingenuity and industriousness.


The primary focus of the Foundation’s grant making in Conservation is the protection of the world’s oceans and species. The Foundation is interested in site-specific projects designed to improve the health of ocean habitats and to enhance their ability to withstand the challenges of climate change. In addition, the Foundation supports efforts to fund species protection, particularly regarding the seas’ apex predators.

The Foundation’s Conservation grant making focuses primarily upon issues of ocean conservation. Priorities within Conservation are:
  • Supporting the creation of Marine Protected Areas
  • Encouraging sustainable fisheries management
  • Eliminating illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing
  • Conserving the world’s shark and ray species
  • Limiting plastics pollution and other ocean debris
  • Preserving coral species and ecosystems
Grant requests for other types of ocean-related conservation efforts may be considered on a limited basis
